    When I use to live in Mexico we used dirt and scrubbed a scorched pot. I haven't had it fail yet even though I've never been back in over 25 yrs.

    I had read several places on the web including Pinterest that putting your grates in a plastic garbage bag with one cup of sudsy ammonia. Seal it and leave it overnight, also suggested that this is done on the patio or outside. Remove the grates and rinse with water, repeat if necessary.

    I have the enameled gray over cast iron grates on my gas range and it works with them.

    Thanks QB Members! Used the baking soda/water method (or I should say my DD did) and voila! One super clean pot. Now, what can I burn this week? Maybe I'll make soup...liquids usually don't burn! LOL

    How about using one of those spray on oven cleaners and let it sit for a while. I used oven cleaner once a long while ago and it worked. You might have to do it a couple of times to get all the black off. Good luck!

    Glad the dryer sheets worked for you, Patchsamkim! Somewhere I saw a list of things used dryer sheets can do. Most were cleaning ideas. We use them for soaking burnt on casseroles, etc. They also removed those ugly brown spots on the casseroles. They they remove the gunk from around spigots and such in the kitchen and bathroom. Sure wish I could find that 100 uses list again. Now you have a pan that looks good again. YIppee!

    baking soda and bit of water, let it sit a day or two

    I just burned my stainless steel pot when I left orange marmalade over night on the stove, about an inch of black charcoal on the bottom of the pot. Came off beautifully with baking soda soak.

    If heat burned it on, use cold water and dish detergent. Soak over night. Using heat to clean up something that heat caused does not make sense. And using poisonous items and solutions to clean something you serve food out of does not make sense to me either. No thanks.

    If heat caused the issue, use cold water. Vice versa.

    Get as much scraped off as possible and sprinkle Barkeeper's Friend on the bottom and let set a few minutes and take a damp dishcloth and rub it in until it's clean. I do this with my stainless pressure cookers. I have burned them pretty bad and I always get them like new again. Hope it works for you.

    Use a Fabric Softener Sheet and Hot water let it set and all of the burnt stuff will magically come lose.
